Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Dec. 26, 1905.
Application nea April 24,1905. serai No. 257,122.
To @ZZ whom it may concern:-
Be it known that I, ROBERT O. SPENCER, J r., a citizen of the United States, and a resident of River Forest, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented an Im- Operating Casement-I/Vindows, Shutters, and the Like, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to means or mechanism for operating Casement-windows, shutters, and the like and for securing them in adjusted -posit'ion open or closed, and relates particularly to means or mechanism for this purpose of the type adapted for operation from within the room. A particular advantage of means or mechanism for operating casement-windows, shutters, and the like of this type is that where screens or other obstructions of a similar nature are secured in the window, opening necessarily inside of said window, raising or disturbing the adjustment of said screen or other obstruction is obviated.`
Also in rainy and stormy weather said window or shutters may be operated from within the room and without the person operating them being at all exposed.
The object of the invention is to provide means for operating casement-windows, shutters, and the like of the general type described which will be simple, strong, and durable and which may be readily applied to any Window old or new.
To this end my improved means or mechanism for operating easement-windows and the like consists of the various features, combinations of features, and details of construction hereinafter described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings, in which means or mechanism of my invention are fully illustrated, Figure l is a perspective view of part of a easement-window, together with my improved mechanism applied for operating the same. Fig. 2 is a sectional view thereof, showing my improved operating mechanism in top plan view. Fig. 3 is a sectional view, on an enlarged scale, of the handle or operating-lever of myimproved operating mechanism; and Fig. 4 is a view suhstantially similar to Fig. 2, showing my improved operating mechanism applied to a window which opens inwardly.
For purposes of concrete illustration I have herein shown means or mechanism of ,my invention as applied for operating a casement-window.
Referring now to the drawings, A designates the sash of a easement-window; B the stile of the window-frame O, the stool of said 5 window-frame; D, the apron thereof, and E a secured to the stool O of the window-frameand having a boss or hub 3 on its under side which engages a suitable hole or opening in said stool O of the window-frame. The upper end of the pivot-stud 1 preferably eX- tends some distance above the plate 2 and is provided with a shoulder which rests upon the top of said plate and operates to support said pivot-stud in desired position relatively to said plate. Rigidly secured in the upper end of the pivot-stud l is an arm 4, which projects laterally therefrom and is provided with a sliding connection to the window-sash A. In the `preferable construction shown said arm 4 is tubular and is connected to the window-sash A by means of a rod 5, fitted to the bore of said arm 4, the outer end of which is pivoted to a bracket 6, secured to said window-sash A. The tubular rod A is made of such length that it will terminate short of the bracket 6 when said window is closed, and the rod 5 is of such length that when fully eX- tended in the operation of the window a sufficient section thereof will remain in engagement with the bore of the arm 4 to form a rigid connection between said arm 4 and rod 5 to support said rod against lateral movement relatively to said arm 4. The pivotstud l is preferably located closely adjacent to the hinged edge of the window A in the manner common in this type of operating IOO IOS
lIO
thereof and which projects below the boss or hub 3 on the bearing-plate 2 in such position that the outer end thereof will extend through a slot or opening 8, formed in the window-apron D beyond the inner side of said window-apron. The slot or opening 8 is made sufficiently long to provide for necessary movement of the rod or arm 7 to fully open and close the window, and to provide for assembling my improved operating mechanism the arm or rod 7 is removably secured to the pivot-stud 1, being preferably screwthreaded into a suitable hole or opening therein.
The window is adapted to be secured or locked in desired position in the following manner: Secured to the side of the windowapron D is a plate 9, in which is formed a slot 10, which registers with the slot 8 in said window-apron and through which the operating arm or rod 7 likewise extends. Formed in the sides of the slot 10 are notches 11, which are adapted to be engaged by a sleeve 12, fitted to the exterior of the arm or rod 7, so as to be movable longitudinally thereof, thus providing for engagement and disengagement of said sleeve with said notches, as desired. In the preferable construction shown said sleeve is made tapering, the end thereof adjacent to the pivot-stud l being slightly smaller than the notches 11 and the end thereof remote from said pivot-stud being slightly larger than said notches 1l thus providing for close engagement of said sleeve with said notches to prevent all play or lost motion thereof. Movement of said sleeve 12 longitudinally of the armor rod 7 is limited by means of a pin 13, secured in said sleeve, which engages a longitudinal slot 14 in said arm or rod. In the preferable construction shown the sleeve 12 extends beyond the outer end of the arm or rod 7 and is provided with a ball or other hand-grip 15 on its outer end to provide for conveniently handling the same.
It is obvious that my improved mechanism may be quickly applied to any window, whether old or new, as it simply involves attaching the plate 2 to the stool of the window, forming the slot or opening S in the apron thereof, and attaching the locking-plate 9 to said apron D,with the opening 10 therein in register with the slot or opening 8 in said window-apron.
In Fig. 4 of the drawings I have shown my improved operating mechanism applied for operating a easement-window which opens inwardly. This application of my im roved operating mechanism obviously invo ves no departure from my invention, said operating mechanism comprising identically the same elements operating on identically the same principle, the only change involved being in the manner of attaching and applying the same and in the relation of parts to secure the necessary direction of movement of the sash, all of which will be readily understood from an inspection of said Fig. 4.
I claim as my invention- 1. The combination with a hinged member, of means for operating the same and for securing the same in adjusted position, comprising a rotatable stud, and arm secured therein, sliding connection between said arm and the hinged member, an operating lever or handle on said rotatable stud, a sleeve freely slidable longitudinally on said operating lever or handle and a fixed plate provided with a slot having edge notches adapted to receive the inner ends of said sleeve.
2.
